After being introduced during his keynote address at WWDC 2010 earlier this month, Apple CEO Steve Jobs quipped that iMovie for iPhone will be available alongside the iPhone 4 “if we approve it.” And approve it they did -- iMovie is ready to rock your new iPhone 4.
There's nothing we like here at the Mac|Life office than good old fashioned product launch. Since we can't be everywhere at once and we enjoy seeing the look of joy in the eyes of our readers, we've posted a slideshow of iPhone launch pics from around the universe.
You knew it had to happen. With the iPad shaking up the e-reader market by bringing to users full color screens, the ability to watch movies, surf the Internet, and run all the apps that the iPhone runs, the e-ink product makers have to be feeling the heat. Now Barnes & Noble and Amazon are slashing prices on their e-readers with two different strategies that may or may not succeed.
What a crazy couple of weeks it’s been for the iPhone 4. No sooner has the device been officially announced by Apple, but would-be owners trip over themselves (and AT&T’s servers) to be the first to pre-order, only to have a few handsets arrive a couple of days early. One of those has fallen into the hands of iFixit, who has completed an early teardown of America’s new mobile darling.
It goes without saying that the iPhone 4’s A4 processor smokes the previous iPhone 3GS, but those expecting a speed jump equal to the iPad might be disappointed, based on some new benchmarks run with one of the early arrival handsets.
Welcome to our brand new weekly column. Every Tuesday, we’ll march through the mediocre multiplayers, sift through the sordid sporting titles, and pound through the petty platformers to find the best, most interesting iOS gaming gems. We’re kicking things off with five terrific new releases, and be sure to come back next week and every week to spare yourself the hassle of sifting the App Store’s latest game releases.
We talk about our experiences with the iOS 4.0 update. On the whole, everyone is happy with the new features. Still, we're curious why home screen wallpaper is missing from the iPhone 3G even after Steve's explanation.
Early deliveries of the iPhone 4 give us hope that last year's activation woes will be kept to a minimum. Fingers crossed.
